We tried Marquesitas, a popular street food dessert, choosing the cajeta version. Cajeta, a Mexican caramel made from goat’s milk, adds a rich, creamy sweetness to the Marquesita. Originating from the city of Celaya in Guanajuato, cajeta has a deep, sweet flavor.
The Marquesita, akin to a crispy crepe, is traditionally rolled and filled with various sweet toppings.
Cheese is added. Maybe Edam Cheese? While the cheese did provide some balance, the sweetness was still prominent.
Definitely a must-try for those with a sweet tooth visiting Yucatán. It’s a delightful dessert that embodies the region’s street food culture, but perhaps it’s best enjoyed in moderation for those less inclined towards very sweet treats.
